Sacramento Public

Library Goes

Even Greener

Begins paperless notifications to its customers

Sacramento - Sacramento Public

Library cardholders are encouraged

to add their e-mail

address to their library record.

This will save the Sacramento

city and county library system

more than $60,000 annually in

mailed print notifications. Nearly

6,000 library customers receive

mailed notices each year to alert

them of fines due, requested

books and materials available

for pick-up at their library

branch, and overdue books.

“This is a not only a cost-saving

method for the Sacramento Public

Library, but enforces our library’s

“go green” campaign by promoting

“paperless” communication to

our customers. The $60,000 in

savings will buy the equivalent

of 4,000 children’s books,”

said Rivkah Sass, Sacramento

Public Library director.

“When customers give us their

e-mail address, they are helping

our library in many ways. More

e-mail addresses on file not only

means a greener library and better

customer service, but more money

for materials and more staff time to

assist our customers,” stated Sass.

Another benefit is an e-mail

reminder will be sent to the

Merry

Christmas!

customer three days before the

checked-out book or item is

due to be returned at the library,

as well as other notifications.

Library cardholders can

submit their e-mail address at

any Sacramento Public Library

branch information desk, or

by calling (916) 264-2920, or

online at saclibrary.org and

then clicking My Account.

The direct-mailing service will

cease on January 18, 2010.

Customers, who give their

e-mail address to library branch

public service desk staff, will

receive a free celebrity bookmark

while supplies last. The attractive

bookmarks feature such popculture

personalities as the Jonas

Brothers, Corbin Bleu, Tony

Hawk, Keira Knightley, Orlando

Bloom, Los Lonely Boys, as well

as the Wimpy Kid, Don’t Let

the Pigeon Drive the Bus, and

Megatokyo (Manga) bookmarks

which are popular with youth.

Customers, without e-mail

service, who wish to receive

library notifications via telephone,

may register their telephone

number at any Sacramento

Public Library branch or

by calling (916) 264-2920.

Holiday Season Santa Checks His List Twice Before Visiting Carmichael

Carmichael Water District Annual Calendar Contest Award Winners

Tapping youthful resources, a children’s art contest came up with refreshing water conservation themes for a

2010 calendar. Pictured, teens and pre-teens from Barrett Middle School pose with art teacher Don Wright

(second right middle row) and Carmichael Water District officials. Calendar sales help fund the school art department.

Carmichael - Sponsored by

the Carmichael Water District

and Carmichael Kiwanis,

a Barrett Middle School

poster contest recently

acclaimed 13 youthful artists.

Each won gift certificates

and the honor of seeing their

work in glossy print. Their

posters are featured in a 2010

calendar that promotes water

conservation. Priced at $5, the

publication will raise funds

for Barrett art programs.

Local Kiwanis and the water

district have staged the contest

for three years. It attracts over 200

entrants and opens young eyes to

water conservation. “The Water

District sends us lots of material

to study,” says Barrett art teacher

Don Wright. “We learn how

salmon need our rivers and about

California’s droughts. Students

can’t wait to get started on their

posters and after the judging,

they can’t wait for the results. For

young people, it’s as big a thrill to

have your photograph and your

art in print as winning a prize.”

Entrants were also asked to

state the importance of water

conservation. “If we do not

save water,” wrote 13-yearold

Jordan Mac Donald, “our

children and our children’s

children will not have any…

the world will slowly be dying.”

United Way Donors Grant Holiday Wishes

Women in Philanthropy membership group leads the way in collecting gifts

Sacramento – United Way

California Capital Region’s Women

in Philanthropy membership group

is once again responsible for

bringing holiday cheer for more

than 100 community youth without

families of their own this winter.

Women in Philanthropy members

and other generous members of the

community collected gifts ranging

from duffle bags to bicycles for

more than 100 youth. The gifts were

all wrapped, tagged and made ready

for delivery Wednesday morning

with help from volunteers from Intel

Corporation and Allied Insurance.

The volunteers also prepared

more than 60 stockings that will

go to foster youth involved in the

Linkage to Education program.

Linkage to Education is a United

Way certified agency that is

responsible for helping foster youth

make a transition from high school

graduation to higher education

systems, including community

college, four-year schools and more.

Each stocking was filled with a

gift card to a local store, a stuffed

animal, snacks and first-aid kits.

Lisa Watts serves as the chair

for Women in Philanthropy. She

said her work group at Intel was

anxious to step into the role of

Santa’s helpers on Wednesday.

“Seeing all of the presents and

stockings is a source of great

pride and great pain,” Watts said.

“It’s sad to see how many youth

are without families, especially

knowing that even with the

significant contributions collected

When someone you

love has Alzheimer’s,

the whole family

is affected.

That’s why we

make sure the whole

family is involved.

It takes a special kind of person – and a

special kind of place – to provide

Alzheimer’s care. You’ll find both at

Emeritus at Citrus Heights.

The special needs of those coping with

Alzheimer’s and other memory impairments

demand a special kind of care and support:

for them, and for those who love them.

Emeritus at Citrus Heights offers just

that, in a secure, inviting setting.

at United Way today, we know

there are some foster youth out

there that will still go without.

“I’m so proud to be part of

this annual event. I’m in awe of

the generosity shown by people

in our community, even with a

tough economy affecting so many

families. We were given a list of

names from social workers and

Linkage to Education and we went

out and made sure that everyone

on that list had their wish granted.

We just want them to know that

someone cares and they won’t be

forgotten this holiday season.”

SCSO Brightens Up the Holidays

By James Lajoie

Special to the

American River Messenger

Despite the rainstorms, sluggish

economy and lingering doom and

gloom, the Sacramento Choral

Society and Orchestra with

Conductor Donald Kendrick truly

brightened up the Holiday Season

with their 14th anual blockbuster

concert “Home for the Holidays” in

the beautiful Mondavi Arts Center

in Davis with two packed audiences

on Saturday, December 12 at 2 PM

and at 8 PM. An endless stream

of guests appeared in the Mondavi

lobby with dripping umbrellas

and appropriate rain gear eagerly

anticipating the joy of song they

have come to expect from their

annual pilgrimage that officially

jump starts the Christmas season.

The lights dimmed at the start of

the concert as 11 year old Jack Baer

from the Sacramento Children’s

Choir sang “Away in a Manger”

from the center spotlight of the

darkened stage with the entire Choral

Society surrounding the audience

with candlelight. The purity and

sweetness of Baer’s soprano voice

filled the hall with remarkable

clarity and sentiment. The chorus

processed slowly from the darkness

onto the stage to a thrilling

crescendo with the orchestra.

The Choral Society displayed

subtle vocal nuance in its

touching rendition of “O Holy

Night” and John Rutter’s ”The Very

Best Time of the Year.”. But their full

bodied fire was unleashed in

Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus”

and the selections by Randol

Alan Bass on works originally

written for the Dallas and

Houston Symphony Orchestras.

It was refreshing to hear

Christmas music with world

class orchestrations that don’t

water down to commercial charts.

Mezzo Soprano Hannah Penn

returned to the Mondavi stage

with the SCSO following her

successful cameo last spring in

John Corigliano’s “Fern Hill”.

The richness of her voice and

her magnetic stage presence

brought new live and inspiration

to familiar and new Christmas

songs including “Have Yourself a

Merry Little Christmas”, “Lovers

on Christmas Eve” and “Chestnuts

Roasting on an Open Fire”. The

newer arrangement of the German

carol “Der Schoene Morgenstern”

(the bright morning star) was a

musical highlight of the evening.

orchestral forces with style and

aplomb and made it seem effortless.

The brass and winds sparkled

in “Sleigh Ride” and trumpeter

Michael Meeks nailed his solo

beautifully. Ensemble soloists

including Clarinetist Sandra

McPherson, flutist Tod Brody

and Keith Bucher, Horn, brought

poignancy and grace to the evening.

If you weren’t in the Christmas

spirit before the SCSO concert,

you certainly had no choice but be

so by the end. The audience sing

was a sonic feast and celebration of

the true meaning of Christmas and

the reason why so may flock to this

important community concert year

after year. The full cast concluded

with an electrifying setting of “We

Wish You A Merry Christmas” and

the standing ovation was evidence

that the SCSO really makes that

wish come true year after year.

INVICTUS (Rated PG-13)

It must be the season for the feelgood

sports story, even though it

feels a lot like Christmas right now.

First, “The Blind Side” seemingly

emerged from nowhere to trumpet a

story of faith and compassion found

in a loving home that sheltered and

nurtured a homeless black youth who

later achieved football greatness.

Now along comes the Clint Eastwood

UPLIFTING, INSPIRING

“INVICTUS” UNITES

SPORTS AND POLITICS

directed “Invictus,” which tells the

story of a rougher sport that played

in the even tougher environment

of a nation torn by its stark racial

divide. Using sports as a metaphor

for reconciliation is even more

timely and appropriate in “Invictus,”

given the setting of South Africa

shortly after the demise of apartheid.

The combination of sports and

politics is an interesting one that

works much better than expected.

The story is mainly focused on the

time of the 1995 Rugby World Cup,

about one year after Nelson Mandela

(Morgan Freeman) became president

of South Africa not long after his 27

year incarceration. Though the unjust

system of apartheid has officially

ended, the bitterness between blacks

and whites continues to linger. To

the chagrin of even some of his

supporters, Mandela sets about

the task of reconciling the racial

differences and healing the wounds of

resentment and hostility. To that end,

he most improbably latches on to the

upcoming 1995 World Cup of Rugby

that is being hosted by South Africa

and seeks to rally his nation around the

Springboks, South Africa’s rugby team.

The problem for Mandela, a

hugely political one indeed, is that

the Springboks were viewed as the

manifestation of the white power

structure that had long oppressed the

black majority during the dreaded

apartheid era. Even the team’s colors

and emblem stir much hostility

among Mandela’s fervent loyalists.

Yet, the new president instinctively

understood that the fragile social

fabric of his post-apartheid nation

could easily explode in a full-blown

civil war. Thus, he made a political

calculation that lending highly

visible support to the national rugby

team for the upcoming World Cup

could yield at least a tentative unity.

An equally challenging problem

was the somewhat sorry state of the

Springboks, an all-white team save

for one prominent black member

that was not championship caliber.

Against the judgment of his advisors,

Mandela sets out to cultivate a

relationship with the team captain,

Francois Pienaar (Matt Damon) in

order to motivate the Springboks

to accomplish unthinkable victory.

Though his Afrikaner parents harbor

racist views, the apolitical Pienaar is

nevertheless impressed by the sincerity

of the president’s avuncular charm

and inspirational musings. South

Africa had the good fortune, as well

as ultimate challenge, of hosting the

1995 Rugby World Cup, for that alone

allowed the country to automatically

compete. Otherwise, the underdog

Springboks would not have qualified.

As such, the national rugby team

faces a serious uphill struggle, but

the Springboks are inspired and

motivated by their new leader, who

cites poetry as a source of strength.

At one point, the team visits Robben

Island, the South African equivalent

of Alcatraz, where Mandela and

others had been incarcerated. Seeing

the small cell where Mandela was

held captive for so long appeared to

motivate the players. The team is

also encouraged by frequent visits to

poor townships where they promote

interest in rugby with eager kids.

Inevitably, the story shifts to the

stadium fields, where the underdog

Springboks face the ultimate test of

competing with other nations. First

up is the national team of Australia,

which the South Africans manage

to defeat. The Springboks continue

to win matches, which are viewed

around the nation by increasingly

exuberant black and white fans in

liquor stores. Then, of course, as with

all sports movies, the climactic finale

comes down to the championship

game with the fearsome New

Zealand All Blacks, a team so

dominant that it had crushed all other

opponents with lopsided scores.

Fortunately, “Invictus” celebrates

South Africa’s upset victory over

the invincible New Zealand team, a

rousing display of hard-fought rugby

competition. It’s the sort of thing to

remind anyone of the United States’

miraculous victory over the Russian

hockey team at the 1980 Winter

Olympics. Clint Eastwood does

excellent work to have us cheering

for the gutsy Springboks. But he

does even better with orchestrating

Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon

into playing their respective roles

as president and rugby team captain

with genial charm and cool passion.

“Invictus” is another class act for

the director who, nearing 80 years

of age, is still perfecting his game.

Dave Says

Dave Ramsey is a personal

money management expert,

popular national radio personality

and the author of three New York

Times bestsellers – The Total

Money Makeover, Financial Peace

Revisited and More Than Enough.

In them, Ramsey exemplifies his

life’s work of teaching others

how to be financially responsible,

so they can acquire enough

wealth to take care of loved ones,

live prosperously into old age,

and give generously to others.

Ramsey offers life-changing

financial advice as host of a

nationally syndicated radio

program, “The Dave Ramsey

Show,” which is heard by nearly

four million listeners each week

on more than 350 radio stations

throughout the United States. His

syndicated column, “Dave Says,”

can be read in more than 270 print

and online publications worldwide.

Say No to Creating Business

Partners

Dear Dave,

I own a moving business, and I

have a good, smart employee, who

is currently my general manager,

and he wants to invest in the

company. We’re growing and doing

pretty well right now, but we could

still use the money. How would

you suggest that I structure things?

- Daniel

Dear Daniel,

You’re not going to like my

answer, because I wouldn’t do this

deal. You’ve got a nice company

right now that’s making money

and growing. Just be patient and

let it grow. Don’t rush things.

If you bring in a partner it’s liable

to complicate everything. This

person is going to develop a whole

new set of opinions on how things

should be done. I’ve got a close

friend, who is older and wiser than

I am, and he’s got a great saying:

“The only ship that won’t sail is a

partnership.” I tend to agree with

that, because when you take on a

partner you end up being joined

at hip. You’re not just getting the

business side of the guy. You’ll

be stuck with all the personal

baggage and problems that could

interfere with the business, too!

Let’s separate this into two issues.

On one hand you’ve got a quality

employee, and you’d like him to

help you carry the load. So, maybe

it’s time for you to build your first

layer of leadership. That means

it’s time to delegate. This guy is

obviously responsible and someone

you trust. Take it to the next level

and develop the relationship even

more. You want to be on the

same page about everything with

him, even to the point that he can

finish your sentences and know

what you want done in every

situation. You could even reward

him for this by cutting him in on

the profits. That way, you give

him the emotional ownership and

desire to carry the load with you.

The second issue is all about how

to grow, and the word to remember

is slowly. Buy used equipment, pay

cash for everything, and stay away

from debt. You’re probably going

to see some good things happen

if you just stay calm and run this

thing lean and clean. Then, set

aside a percentage of your profits

each year for additional trucks, new

crew members and things like that.

You won’t be an overnight success,

but you’d rather be the tortoise than

the hare. Remember that story?

The tortoise wins every time!

- Dave

Christmas is About Giving

Dear Dave,

We’re new parents, and we

were wondering if you have

any advice on how to teach

children that Christmas is

not a gift-giving free-for-all.

- Lauren

Dear Lauren,

This is a great question. I think

one of the best things you can do

is teach kids from an early age

exactly what Christmas is all about.

It’s not about kids being consumers

and getting everything they see.

First and foremost, Christmas

is a spiritual holiday. It’s about

celebrating the birth of Christ!

Christ came into this world

because God chose to give his

only son. So, Christmas is about

giving, not receiving. You need to

talk about this concept a lot. Now,

how long will that stick in their

heads after they’re confronted with

Saturday morning cartoons and

malls full of bright, shiny things

that make noise? Probably not long.

That’s why you need to have the

“giving” talk early and often – not

just when Christmas rolls around.

The only way you win at this

parenting thing is through death

by a thousand cuts. You just don’t

stop teaching, and finally you wear

them down and hope some of your

good advice sticks in their heads!

- Dave

Dealing With Brothers

By Laura Snyder

“Mom, he’s making that

sound again!”

“Mom, he keeps coming into

my room!”

“Mom he took my Polly

Pocket and made a paint brush

with her hair.”

“Mom, tell him to be

quiet. He’s driving me crazy!

AGGH!”

When you have children that

are close in age, you are always

going to hear those skirmishes.

My daughter tends to be

on the receiving end of her

brother’s annoying teasing most.

“He’s so annoying, Mom.

He just won’t stop when I ask

him nicely. But you won’t let

me smack him.”

We were in the car having

a long-overdue discussion

on how to deal with the male

species. This is a subject that

volumes have been written

about, but no satisfactory

answers have ever been

disclosed. However, there was

one thing I did know. Females

were experts in the art of guile

and it was the one weapon

with which my daughter could

counter her annoying brothers

with some degree of success.

So I began to instruct

her as mothers throughout

the ages have done:

“You can’t let him know it

bothers you, honey, or he’ll

continue to do it. If you laugh at

his teasing instead of threatening

him with physical violence, it

kind of takes all the fun out of

it for him. He gets a kick out of

your anger, so you must not let

him see it. Ignore his teasing

and he will eventually stop.”

“So, should I not be angry?”

she wondered.

“No, it’s okay to be angry,

just don’t let him know it.”

“Alright. I’ll try it, I guess.

I won’t say anything. I’ll even

laugh, but I’m going to need a

chainsaw.”

I want to assure you that a

chainsaw was not any part of my

advice. She came up with that

all by herself. Very creative,

I thought, if a tad aggressive.

I suggested a less violent

approach: writing her

frustrations down in a journal.

She still liked her own

version of President Theodore

Roosevelt’s advice: Speak

softly and carry a big chainsaw.

I convinced her that brothers

may be annoying now but they

are handy later in life. They

attract potential dates. She

thought all of his friends were

dorks, but she agreed that she

might need him to carry big

things if she couldn’t find a

boyfriend who wasn’t annoying.

Again, I suggested writing

down her frustrations. She

decided to write in a journal,

but what she would write was

all the different ways she could

prank her older brother. The

classics would be there, of

course. Like squirting whipped

cream in his hand while he’s

sleeping and then tickling his

nose. Plus, a few modern pranks

that might include naked Barbie

dolls falling out of his closet

while his friends are visiting.

“If I put enough ideas down

in a book, I could sell it to other

girls who have problems with

their brothers.”

“Yes, you could, provided

that none of your pranks involve

a chainsaw.”

So began my daughter’s

fledgling writing career… and

she had her brother to thank for

it. Though, I probably shouldn’t

mention that fact to her.
